NEW SINGLE 'SOUND OF THE SUMMER' RELEASED JULY 29TH!!!
Following on from their 2013 debut 'Deep Fried' and 2014's mini-album 'Blues Uzi'; London trio Miraculous Mule precede their second album proper with a psychedelic-soul inflected stomper which takes a well worn music industry cliche and turns it on it's head. Taking its cues from Hendrix and the Isley Brothers the song begins as a paean to long joyous sunny days and hot sticky nights before morphing into something a little darker.
'Sound of the Summer' is released on 29th July and is followed by their second album 'Two Tonne Testimony' in November. Preorders for the album will be open soon.

Blues Uzi is MM's (drive-by) take on being "shot down by the blues". The blues is a feeling not a genre, and in the case of Patrick McCarthy - fully automatic, 600 RPM and living next door to you. This furious song is the the product of a lack of comprehension of these times, building up over decades into holy shitfire.
Highway Sound tells the story of a man wrestling with his natural inclination to walk the crooked road of his youth and the conscience that ties him to the settled life he has fallen into.
City Of Refuge and Judgement are based on songs by Blind Willie Johnson and Rev. Sister Mary Nelson respectively, both with new lyrics written by Sheehy, who say: "Having long been an apostate, the lack of a belief in the heavenly hereafter has never really troubled me. But the lack of a belief in a truly terrible place where the evil fucks of this world would be punished for the wrongs they have committed, now that really does trouble me! These songs convey an apocalyptic vision where a vengeful and just God returns to destroy all those who waged war, raped women and children, subjugated the poor and destroyed the planet in his name."
I Don't Do Nobody Nothin' is a traditional song which deals with good old fashioned hypocritical Christian bigotry and is as true today as it was when it was sung decades ago. Click here to order
